Customized Lab Grown Unnatural Blue SIC Single Crystal Raw Material for Jewelry
Silicon carbide has a high hardness (8.5-9.25 Mohs hardness depending on crystal type [atomic arrangement] and crystal orientation) and a high refractive index (2.5-2.71 depending on crystal type). In addition, silicon carbide is a very ductile material and extremely stable, can be heated in the air to more than 2000·F without damage. Silicon carbide is a complex material system that forms more than 150 different crystalline forms, each with different physical and optical properties. These different crystal forms can be divided into three basic forms: cubic, rhombohedral and hexagonal. Both rhombohedral and hexagonal crystal systems can be found in various atomic arrangements with different atomic packing orders.Crude silicon carbide gemstones are cut from large single crystals and then made into finished gemstones through a combination of techniques now used in traditional colored gemstones and diamonds. The hardness and toughness of silicon carbide allow for sharp edges in the face of the stone batch, which enhances the overall appearance and shine of the stone.
Its hardness and durability are impressive, rivaling some of the hardest materials we know of.
SIC is resistant to oxidation and corrosion, due to the formation of a silicon oxide layer on its surface when exposed to air.
Silicon carbide can withstand extremely high temperatures, making it an ideal material for high-temperature environments.
SIC is known for its hardness, second to diamond and boron carbide. It also has high thermal conductivity, making it an excellent heat sink.
